Wounded Warrior Getaway!

Debby Giusti here!

I'm holding a book signing, on Thursday, to celebrate the release of my latest Love Inspired Suspense. THE AGENT'S SECRET PAST is my thirteenth novel and the sixth book in my Military Investigations Series.

Karen Duncan owns Omega Book Center and hosts lovely events for my readers. She provides refreshments and a warm welcome to all. The gals and guys who buy my books enjoy spending time at the Book Center and usually go home with an assortment of new reads. In addition to recent releases, Karen also sells used books that are priced within most budgets--another benefit to shopping at Omega Books.

For my local signings, I always donate the proceeds to a special cause, and this time, I'm supporting the Wounded Warrior Getaway, sponsored by Joni & Friends International Disability Center. The weekend provides refreshment and fellowship for military personnel injured in war and currently in treatment, along with their families. All expenses are covered, and the event gives them time to relax and enjoy being a family away from hospitals and rehab. They receive goody bags with gifts and books and gift cards, along with notes of encouragement and support. (Donations of items and cards are needed as well as monetary gifts to help cover the cost of the weekend, if you want to get involved.)

I remember reading Joni's autobiography years ago. She was injured in a diving accident and paralyzed. Eventually, she fell in love with a wonderful man, they married and began to work to help others. Her organization initially focused primarily on the disabled but, in recent years, has reached out to wounded warriors as well. As you know, they're my heroes!

  9. Hi Pamela, did you ever read Joni's book? Her story is amazing. She was angry at first. Then she realized she wanted to make something of her life, which she's done. Amazing woman. Amazing courage. Just like our Wounded Warriors!

  11. sounds like fun. I read Joni's autobiography also and think I still have it here. She is a good example of someone God didn't heal physically but used her for a greater good. (Its people like her I mention when I am told I am not being healed cos my faith is not strong enough)

    Prince Harry walked to the south pole with some wounded warriors from America, England and Australia and working with them in organizing something about games.

  12. Oh Debby!!! I've had your book signing marked on my calendar (in PERMANENT marker ink, LOL) and was so excited about attending.
    Then I found out I have an important meeting to attend that same afternoon--UGH! So, I am calling Omega today and ordering copies of your wonderful book. Praying all goes well, and please know I'm there "in spirit" *smile*. Hugs, Patti Jo

  13. Prince Harry is a good man!

    Joni's story is amazing. Such determination. You're right, Jenny. God has used her disability for greater good.
